LoftZone StoreFloor has been installed in thousands of properties, from new build right through to heritage period houses. It works well in all of these but some older properties do cause certain issues when the joists are of uneven height or not flat. This doesn’t stop StoreFloor being fitted, but it’s worth considering the following points:
The first point to note is that StoreFloor bridges over, and completely misses out, most joists, since the Cross-Beams span 1200mm. Therefore, with a bit of planning, you can often choose to place the supports in such a way as to completely miss out the joists that cause the problem.
Occasionally however you will find that, even with the best planning, some of the joists you fix the supports to could be higher than others, or too uneven to screw into. The way our installers get around this is either by fitting a wooden shim underneath some supports, to make everything level, or to screw a small new piece of wood to the side of the original joist, and to fit the support on to that.
